K. Michelle is completely silicone-free and feeling herself. The 34-year-old was comfortable showing off her body with the silicone injections, but she also is unabashed when it comes to showing people what her body looks au naturel. She posted a series of photos this week of herself in the mirror, sans pants, showing off the results of multiple surgeries and some emotional work.
“I like myself,” she said in a caption, “and nobody will ever take that from me again.”
Before undergoing all of the procedures to remove the silicone, K. Michelle said last year on Ebro in the Morning that her insecurities left her feeling like the body she had coming into the music industry, wasn’t going to be enough.
“I had a big a–. I already had one. It was insecurity,” she said. “I was like, ‘I want a big a–, I want some titties, I want some teeth. This is what I wanna do.’ I just did it. It felt good. It was a temporary bandage on some issues with me and it felt good at the moment. Now I just want to be me, who my mama made me. This thing is heavy and I want it off, and I want my butt back. I would tell my little girls, you might see some changes and some things you want to do to yourself, but think long and hard because this is what I did and this is what I had to do and spend all that money to reverse it just to get back to me.”
She also shared in the BET documentary, Killer Curves, that after dealing with all of the medical issues connected to her decision to alter her backside, she wants to be open and honest as much as possible to help other women avoid going through what she had to.
“It was headaches all the time,” she said. “It was, can’t even walk.”
“I have a very powerful platform,” she added. “And it’s nothing but my obligation to come out and say, ‘Honey, this ain’t what you want.'”
